Miner families, after checking our bus routes this afternoon, we currently plan to be open Thursday. If we receive precipitation overnight that makes driving dangerous, that would change our plan. We will check bus routes between 4:30 and 5:00 in the morning, and if we make the decision to close, we will send text alerts, post to our social media accounts, as well as alert the news stations. Safety of students and staff remains our top priority.

Bauxite families, we had a planned lockdown drill earlier today at BMS. BMS teachers were told it was a drill at the time of the drill. The RAVE panic button was also tested at this time. Unfortunately, high school staff also received the alert from the RAVE panic app, but the alert did not indicate that it was a drill. This was an error, and we are actively working to make sure this does not happen again. Safety training occurs to help us be better prepared for actual emergencies, so even though unnecessary alarm was caused, we can learn from this. We would never cause alarm for a drill intentionally. We love our staff and our Miner families. Thank you for your understanding.

Although the school year has gotten off to a smooth start, Bauxite Schools would like parents and families to know the district is continually striving to improve security at all campuses. The district is increasing the number of armed Commissioned School Security Officers (CSSOs). The CSSO program has been in place since 2018, and this year several additional staff members are joining the program. The district’s School Resource Officer (SRO) Bobby Shell has also been speaking to classes at multiple grade levels to discuss what to do in case of an emergency. Parents and students have been very appreciative of the way he shares his message with each grade level in a non-frightening way. Officer Shell has also ensured lockdown drills are being conducted at all campuses. In addition, efforts are also being made to prevent students from propping open outside doors, and the school board recently approved the purchase of guest access panels to help school staff screen outside visitors before they enter the building. The district is also proud of the See Something, Say Something program, which allows students to anonymously text threats or concerns to staff after hours (text 423-780-1180). All of these efforts, along with other safety measures, are designed to make Bauxite Schools as safe as possible. The safety of our staff and students will continue to remain a top priority of the Bauxite School District. If you have suggestions or concerns about school safety, feel free to email our SRO Bobby Shell at
